Vermont woman charged with burning own home

June 8, 2018

WESTFORD, Vt. (AP) — Police say a Vermont woman is accused of burning down her own house in Westford.

Fifty-seven-year-old Maryanne Mead pleaded not guilty on Friday to first-degree arson.

Firefighters responded to the fire around 2:30 a.m. Friday. They say when they arrived, the two-story home was fully engulfed.

Police say no one was in the house home because it was uninhabitable due to a previous electrical fire that happened on May 25.

The public defender representing Mead did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
